  • 1 Cup water
  • 3-4 Pieces of frozen bone in chicken
  • 1 tablespoon chopped onions or 1/2 onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon of the ingredients listed below:
  • Tumeric
  • Garlic Powder can use fresh 1 clove
  • Cumin
  • Paprika
  • Oregano
  • Rosemary
  • Thyme
  • Salt & Pepper to taste


  1. Place frozen chicken in slow cooker. It doesn't matter if it is frozen or not, just throw it in there. I usually place mine in there frozen because I forget to take it out. Turn the slow cooker on low.
  2. Pour 1 cup water over the chicken.
  3. This is the slightly secret part. Sprinkle the spices over the chicken to cover the surface of the chicken. It's ok to get some in the water too, but you want to try to get most of the spices on the chicken for the flavors to soak in as it cooks.
  4. Allow this chicken to cook for about 9 hours or longer. This is great for working moms, since the chicken can cook for longer in the pot.
  5. After about 9 hours take the chicken out and let it rest a few minutes before serving.
  6. Don't throw out that leftover yummy juice. Add 4 cups water and cut a few carrots, 1/2 onion, 1-2 cloves garlic and a celery stick and throw it back in there on high for a couple of hours. Then you have amazing chicken stock for any recipe! Doesn't that sound delicious?
